    Looking for the seat bolt size/length.
    It would also be great to have the fasteners listed that Sandman replaced his side cover bolts with.

    Maybe a common fastener index of some sort?

    Here are the details. Bolt Size is M6 (6mm shank/stud), Thread Pitch is 1.0 (1 mm), and length is 16 mm. However, the integrated washer is about 2.3 mm, soooo, if you don't plan on using a washer (it may not be necessary depending on the head type), you may want to get a 14 mm.

    Size=M6, Thread=1.0, Length=16mm (14mm without washer).

    Hope that helps...:knary

    Thanks for taking the time to do this. It will be a big time saver. Might be more useful to use post# instead of page # since members might have their settings configured differently.

    Random Thoughts to a friend who asked....he asked about power and versus the DRZ400...and WTF do I really know anyway. I just stole every idea I ever had, OK almost, from someone who was a real rider. Not a pretender like me.

    Thanks again ramz and BigDog

    Hey Bill, I am trying to get to HighFive's chain adjustment info, but clicking on the link (to page 25) doesn't take me to chain tightness. Can you help a brother out?

    (as if you don't have more important stuff to do)

    HF's "two and a half fingers" spec for chain tension is post # 5910; that's page 394 for me.

    Glad to help. I took notes along the way. I am such a nerd. I think I'm trying to work up the courage to mess with that CO setting. My bike has that funky hesitiation just off idle. Makes it aggravating at slow speeds sometimes, especially if you've come from a carbed bike.
